Expert Answers

An illustration of the letter 'A' in a speech bubbles

A little younger than Corie, Nollie ten Boom van Woerden has left the Beje and started a family of her own. She is proud that her son Peter has won the coveted role of church organist, and she loves the rest of her family too. However, her behaviors seem to put the family in peril.  Nollie is an extremely honest person, and it is this very honesty and her insistence on it that almost revealed the resistance workers on several occasions. She seemed to feel that if this is God’s work, then we will not be harmed by obeying his laws.
